Larissa's first novel, Beautiful Wreck, will be published on February 1, 2014. Beautiful Wreck is a time travel love story set in a bleak future and in 10th century Viking Iceland. She's already hard at work on a companion book set in the same world.
An eclectic reader, Larissa's favorite book this year was A Concise Dictionary of Old Icelandic. She reads speculative fiction, romance, historical fiction and craft books, and has a special love for knitting stitch dictionaries. A two-time craft author, Larissa has published books, articles and designs with a variety of knitting-related publications. She independently publishes her hand knitting designs.
She lives in Portland, Oregon, with her husband Martin and son Sebastian, adorable loser-of-hand-made-hats.
